Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 1. The game, the first to use new lights installed at Memorial Field, will also be the first-ever night contest in the history of Dartmouth football.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the program,” Head Coach Buddy Teevens ’79 stated, “and we are deeply appreciative of the alumni support that provides an opportunity like this. To be a part of the first night game ever at Dartmouth is something special, and our players and the coaches could not be more excited about this event.”
